There is nothing like viewing beautiful Christmas trees to help get folks in the spirit of season and a recent weekend found Chris and I viewing all of the lovely decorated trees at the Porter Center at Brevard College.
I know several people who are involved with this yearly project and sadly this is the first year I have been able to attend. Different businesses in the community sponsor the trees and then other groups decorate them. The public is invited (sorry the event is over for the year but next year I will get in on it earlier) and everyone gets to vote on their favorite tree. It was difficult for me to choose but I managed to support one that was decorated by our own Connestee Falls Art League with a lot of wonderful artistic decorations. It actually came in second place so I am happy about that*91ol The great thing is that the proceeds from the entry and any trees that are sold as well as gift items go to benefit The Children’s Center of Transylvania County. This is a great organization locally that does a great deal to help children in our area — maybe a possible Comments for a Cause recipient in the future, come to think of it.
Check out the trees that I am choosing to highlight out of the many that were on display.
What a fun event this is and a great way to raise money for a local organization. If you have a tree up in your house let me know how you have it decorated. We aren’t doing a tree this year (Maksim…..enough said) so I love to hear how others are decorating theirs. All comments on any blog post this month mean a 50 cent donation to our Comments for a Cause – The Haven of Transylvania County.

OH my such beautiful trees. I especially like the ornaments made from wood. So pretty. I too love to look at Christmas trees. Our tree has ornaments I have collected for our grandsons ever the years sense they were born (Andrew is 28 and Curtis is 20) always enjoy putting them on and them the rest is ones Chuck and I have collected over the years. Last year we gave our daughter (Chani) the ones we had held on for her.
What beautiful and creative trees. I didn’t even put up a tree. Just did not feel like it this year. However, I put out other holiday decorations.
The ornament with the animals looking at the Christmas tree is my favorite, with the pinecone flower a very close second. I haven’t really done anything that creative this year bc I’ve been so busy. I say ‘busy’ but not necessarily ‘productive.’ I’m really going to work on reversing those two words in 2020. There’s a h-u-g-e difference! 😉 If I don’t “talk” with you again, have a Merry Christmas, Beth Ann!!!
I can see why you liked the nautical themed one with the lighthouse! They are all fabulous. What a great fundraiser.
I do like viewing such creative ways of decorating Christmas trees, but I always stick to our version of hodgepodge ornaments that evoke lots of memories.
